As the deer panteth for the water

I suppose I have not talked about my God as much as I think of Him. So I am sharing here my favorite Communion song, hoping that this would spell how much I long for my God. And if anyone wonders who wrote this, well, this came from a shepherd boy who rose to become king….

As the deer panteth for the water
So my soul longeth after Thee
You alone are my heart’s desire
And I long to worship Thee

You alone are my strength, my shield
To you alone may my spirit yield
You alone are my heart’s desire
And I long to worship Thee

You’re my friend and you are my brother
Even though you are a king
I love you more than any other
So much more than anything

I want you more than gold or silver
Only you can satisfy
You alone are the real joy giver
And the apple of my eye
